Welcome back to the Hype Index, where we take a moment to reflect on the week in pop by ranking the biggest stories and tell you how we really felt about them. This second week in August brought us a new MTV VMAs host, the Billboard Hot 100 chart’s reigning artist, and Adam Lambert‘s style makeover. We also saw some major and minor disappointments by way of Rihanna‘s lost endorsement deal, Lana Del Rey‘s new music and the sad news about the late Amy Winehouse‘s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil. Just who ranked where? Watch to find out.

To see exactly how these artists entered the hype index, check below.
